Lucifer came into being after the all-too-quick demise of The Oath, with that band's excellent vocalist (Johanna Sadonis) starting anew here. This band pairs well with Death Penalty, as both bands are female-fronted doom bands that debuted not far apart from each other, and additionally both bands feature ex-Cathedral guitarist Gaz Jennings. Lucifer is the more traditionally doom-minded of the two bands, drawing from familiar modern doom influences while Sadonis maintains her high standards from her previous band -- her voice is perfect for a doom band like this. Hopefully this band will last longer.

Upcoming album: Lucifer III, release date March 20, 2020.
